THE 45th ANNUAL BOSTON UNIVERSITY CONFERENCE ON LANGUAGE DEVELOPMENT
NOVEMBER 5-8, 2020
Keynote Speaker: Reiko Mazuka (RIKEN Center for Brain Science)
Plenary Speaker: Adele Goldberg (Princeton University)
We will be accepting two kinds of submissions: symposium proposals (due April 1; see below) and abstracts for 20-minute talks or posters (beginning April 1, due May 1).
CALL FOR SYMPOSIUM PROPOSALS
We are currently soliciting 1000-word proposals for a 90-minute symposium at the Boston University Conference on Language Development on any topic likely to be of broad interest to the conference attendees.
Proposals should include a list of the participants, topics, and format, and should name at least one organizer. Send submissions to firstname.lastname@example.org with "Symposium proposal" in the subject line.
DEADLINE: All symposium proposal submissions must be received by April 1, 2020. Symposium decisions will be made by June.
CALL FOR ABSTRACTS
DEADLINE: All abstract submissions must be received by 8:00 PM EST, May 1, 2020. Please note this is an earlier deadline than in previous years.
Submissions that present research on any topic in the fields of first, second, and additional language acquisition from any theoretical perspectives will be fully considered.
Abstracts must be limited to 500 words, with up to one extra page for examples, figures, tables, and references (for a total length of no more than two pages). A suggested format and style for abstracts is available at: http://www.bu.edu/bucld/abstracts/abstract-format/
We encourage submissions from scholars in countries affected by the new travel restrictions. We will arrange remote presentation for accepted abstracts by scholars who are unable to attend for this reason.
